I thank you for considering writing a review of my book.
It does not have to be long. We’re not talking school work, here.
Even just a few words can help a new reader looking for their next read.
If you would post a review with the retailer where you purchased the book and perhaps even copy-paste it to Goodreads if you are a user, you will make this author and future readers very happy.
Not used to writing reviews?
Maybe this will help or provide inspiration. These are my personal preferences as a user of book reviews:
- Avoid spoilers and plot summaries. Most other readers like to be allowed to discover the story for themselves.
- Share what you liked or disliked without spoiling (see above). It might be the style of writing or how the story made you feel. What did reading the story/book give you? Or something along those lines.
- Explain your rating. Maybe what you penalised is not a big deal for someone else, or maybe they would feel even more strongly about it and not buy the book at all. It is helpful to know the reasoning behind a rating.
Your review can guide and lead others to interesting spots along their way.
